Textbook on Human Development
The United Nations
Development Programme in the Russian Federation is very proud
to present the first ever Textbook on Human Development,
jointly authored by independent Russian and international experts.

ALIGN="JUSTIFY">With the introduction and
widespread popularity of the National Human Development Reports
for the Russian Federation came the idea of developing a Master?s
Course in Human Development at the Moscow State University (MSU),
School of Economics. The next step involved disseminating the
course to other universities by offering appropriate training
to the faculty of regional institutions of higher learning.
The publication of this textbook represents the third and final
component of the UNDP/MSU joint project, and embodies three
years of experience teaching the Human Development concept.
